Remembering Dick Clark: Host, Media Mogul, KOST-FM Pitchman
Is there anything Dick Clark didn't do? Producer, Media mogul, TV show host, music industry fixture, awards show maven -- and TV pitchman. Clark promoted radio stations around the country through the 1980s and 1990s -- and here in Los Angeles, his spots were for adult contemporary KOST-FM. Above, a spot from 1984. And below, Dick strolls along the coast for KOST in 1991.
It wasn't just radio stations that Dick Clark pitched over the years. Below, he promotes slacks for JCPenney in this goofy spot. Check out his pose at the end!
And here he is promoting the Dairy Queen burger (complete with "processed cheese").
